Sunday's are to be a day of rest and that is how I used it, but it was really hard. It was hard to be away from my family, my home, my job, etc. This was the only day I have been hungry and boy have I been hungry! My stomach has been growling all day! Funny how when your body doesn't have something to focus on, it focuses on hunger - or at least mine did today. After complaining about the workouts all week, I can't wait for it to start tomorrow - the time off is hard, too much time to think about what I have left at home to come here.
So since I am here - here we go with today. Today was weigh in day and this is NOT the TV show. No one here, not even the men, had numbers like you see on TV. In fact, Susie from Season 2, was here last week and she had a lot to say about that. She reminded us that a week on TV is more like 2 or even 3 and that there is a lot of purposeful dehydration prior to weighing in.
Today, I had a real-life weigh-in. I ate breakfast at 7, had my normal 2 cups of hot tea and 2 glasses of water. I ate my fruit and my muffin and I had my weigh in an hour later. I also stopped taking my fluid pill last week after the dehydration episodes, so my real weigh in was a little disappointing I must admit. They say the average for women is 2 lbs the first week. I had 4 lbs, but I was still expecting more. According to the multi-weekers before me, week 2 is better. The trainers say that the body is in shock and just holding on to the weight and that when it realizes you are going to continue this, then it starts to fall off - we will see.
The menu board shows what we ate and I mostly caught up on my TV watching and a little paperwork. I did my laundry and napped. That's about it. We'll see what the new week holds!
